Home Sweet East Nashville


For the last few months I’ve been working on getting settled into my “new to me” 1930 something stone cottage over in East Nashville.

I went here, there and everywhere around town looking for things to make it feel like home and thought I’d share some of them with you! And there are lots of links to click on… just hover over the name of the shop where I found the goodie!


This bench was a cool find at the October City Farmhouse Pop Up. 2Storeys Antiques came to the pop up all the way from Columbia, Tennessee with it. The seat is made out of an old wagon with refurbished legs. The water can and pillow are also City Farmhouse Pop Up finds!


My entry way table… another City Farmhouse Pop Up steal! The bucket holding the pine cones something I snagged at Christmas Village.

My living room could not get any cozier if it tried.

The built ins were the hardest thing to complete. I had lots of help from the City Farmhouse Pop Up once again… the bird house… the lantern… that beautiful tin and Nashville’s own Paddywax candles!

My dining room table is my new prized possession. It was made beautifully by Southern Charm Farmhouse Furniture (formerly East Nashville Farmhouse Furniture). McKenzie Child’s is from Vintage Jolie in downtown Franklin! dining roomIMG_0060 IMG_0058

My very first housewarming gift was glasses from East Nashville’s Barista Parlor from my sweet realtor.

And to the office! I found my desk at the always amazing Nashville Flea Market at the fairgrounds.


I moved pretty fast getting everything decorated but I didn’t feel like my home was truly complete until I got my hands on these two signs from House of Belonging.

In my office: “Today is a good day for a good day.”


And leading to my bedroom: Proverbs 4:23 “above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” IMG_0064

Just a little slice of Heaven right there…

I got a big new comfy bed for my new room and made it comfy with Carolyn Westbrook bedding and lamp from… you guessed it… the City Farmhouse Pop Up! And my nightstand is another flea market find.

I was desperately needing to block out light from one of my windows but hated the look of black out curtains. My mom and I found these amazing doors at Peacock Lane in Nolensville and she turned them into sliding window treatment!


And the finishing touch… a beautiful painting by local artist Heather Thompson!


Another City Farmhouse Pop Up right there… the next one is in June and obviously I can’t wait!
